Last Minute Halloween Ideas

Hey Everyone!

I come to you today with a couple of quick last minute Halloween ideas. They are all pretty simple and require minimal effort.

The first two options are related and can be seen in all its glory above. It is the Ring Girl from the movie The Ring and the Static TV she crawls out of. If you have seen the movie you will know exactly what scene I am refering to. So if you have long black hair like I do and friend without a costume, than this costume will be relatively easy for you

Ring Girl costume:

Items needed:
-long black hair or a wig of some sort
-a white dress or a long white shirt
-black and white face paint ( if you have nothing laying around at home try using a light foundation and some black eyeshadow)

All you have to do is put on your outfit and go to town on your face with the black and white face paint. Use the black to create shadows and a sunken look to your face. Part your hair in the middle and bring it forward so your face is partially hidden underneath your hair.

Static TV costume:

Items needed:
-black poster board
-aluminum foil
-pipe cleaners
-old head band

Take you aluminum foil and glue it on to your black poster board, then take your black sharpie and draw dots all across the TV to make it seems like there is static. Add a string to the back of the poster board so you can put the TV around your neck. Feel free to add any other details to make your TV look more realistic.
For the antenna, take an old head band and wrap some pipe cleaners around the head band, take your foil and scrunch it up to make 2 little aluminum balls which you can stick on top of the pipe cleaners. Use tape if needed! Dress up in all black and white and you will be good to go!

If you have any questions feel free to leave them down below! Have a Happy Halloween and thanks fo reading!

The Perfect Pink Lip: Dior & Chanel

Who says you can't rock a pink lip during fall?
I come to you with my perfect combination for a hot pink lip. These two colors will create the perfect pink color that is wearable enough during the day or at night. I have worn this combination with a ton of different eye looks and I find it suits them all pretty well.

The lip stick is from the Dior Addict Extreme line and is in the shade 553 Princess Extreme (seems like this shade was limited edition, I have seen it around at a few counters so check your local  Dior counter, Dior Addict Highshine in 454 Rose Show is a really good dupe!) This shade in particular is a yellow toned hot pink that you can apply a lightly or go full on depending on how deep you want the color to be. I find the formula for this range of lipsticks to be one of my favorites because they are  build-able, creamy, moisturizing and last but not least, just plain beautiful. I am patiently waiting for the Sephora friends and family sale so I can pick up another shade or two.

The other half to the duo is Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in 57 Insolence. This lip gloss is somewhat of a gel texture and is non stick with a very high shine which is most likely due to the gel formulation. I don't find it particularly sticky but it does have a bit tackiness. The gloss is definitely more of blue toned pink which is why it works so well with the lipstick. The two neutralize each other out which helps to create the perfect pink color.

Here is the duo in all its glory:

Foundation: NARS Sheer Glow in Santa Fe
Blush: NARS blushers in Madly and Orgasm
Bronzer: Benefit's Hoola
Highlighter: Dior Amber Diamond

Mascara: Covergirl Lash Blast
Eyeliner: YSL Eyeliner Effect Faux Cils Shocking
Eyeshadow: random assortment from UD's Naked & Naked 2

Lipstick: Dior Addict Extreme in 553 Princess Extreme
Lipgloss: Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in 57 Insolence

If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment down below! Don't forget to follow and I hope you all have a great week.

Fall Trend: Gold Jewellery

Hey Everyone!

Its been a while since I posted anything about jewellery which is odd because I love jewellery. During the past few weeks I have been gravitating towards gold jewellery. I think the warmer tones really add something to an outfit during the cooler fall months. In fact, I think during winter and fall gold jewellery is a must.

The photo above include some of the pieces I have been sporting as of late. Sorry about the poor quality of the photo, I couldn't get a proper photo no matter what I tried. If you're wondering where you can find these pieces the Cuff and Earring Cuff are both from H&M (the bracelet is over year old but you can find something similar at forever21), the necklace, bracelet and studs are all from forever 21 and are for the most par recent purchases so try having a peek at you local forever 21. The rings are from a local store but infinity midi rings can be found basically anywhere!

Hope you enjoyed this short post, and thanks for reading!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian followers
